Franc Grams – Mistakes x Freedom [Music Video] (CT)

April 18th, 2014 | By

unnamed (7)

Everyone makes mistakes, but Franc Grams announces them on his new record, “Mistakes“. Originally premiered by DJ Booth, Grams does justice over the Smoke The World’s Chipmunk-soul production. The artist describes how his playeriffic tendencies lost him one “hell of a shawty,” and expresses regret for his time as a corner boy. On the back, he turns his judgment outward, excoriating doctors for making money off people’s false hopes and music industry execs for dragging down the culture he loves. The latest single appears on Grams’s “Let’s Start Over” available on iTunes now.

Also check out his previous video, “Freedom“, shot & directed by Alex Acosta

Anderson Paak – Cover Art [EP] (CA)

April 18th, 2014 | By

Coverart

I’m still trying to get use to the new name but Anderson Paak is back with a new project.
Collaborating with a new group, the Hellfyre Club, Paak presented the “Cover Art” EP; an innovative soul-fused covered project. Seminal Rock ‘n Pop love songs of the last decade are ambitiously transformed through a contemporary hiphop and R&B song-sculpting lens. Standout lead single “MAPS” made famous by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs gets a totally tipped treatment of crooning vocals paired with minimally arranged electronic production, allowing the remainder of the voyage to fuse rapping, live instrumentation, and vocal range to pave the way for things to come from this uprising talent.

Everyone who know me well knows my fascination for ‘The Boondocks’, and to hear its coming back for the fourth and final season brings joy deep down in my heart. Not only does the program shows comedy, action, and topics dealing with world life problems, the thing I most enjoy about this show is the music selection. Nothing tops what Mr. Aaron McGruder picks for the episodes, but these three DJs have been pretty close to keeping me satisfied with the branch franchise. DJ Drama, Don Cannon, and Trendsetter Sense team up for the last time for the official “Boondocks Mixtape” installment.

The tape features tracks from known and rising names such as Killer Mike, Alchemist, Troy Ave, Two-9, Chuck Inglish, Wara From The NBHD, Chevy Woods, Skeme, Michael Christmas, Jon Connor, CharlieRED, Lil Herb, Childish Major, Tuki Carter, Problem and many others. The show premieres on April 21st, and you can get your official copy of “The Boondocks Season 4″ mixtape after the jump
